As you may or may not know, Paula takes the time before both events and one to one appointments to meditate even if just for a short while. Meditating helps to increase Paula’s vibrations in order for her to communicate with our loved ones and feel, see and hear the things she does. In order for Paula to meditate she finds a stolen moment in the peace and quiet of a meeting room or bedroom of whatever venue we are visiting. Meditation has to be tailored in order to suit yourself and your needs. There are so many different ways in which to go about it, we have complied some advice below to help you get started…
What Is Self Meditation?
We’ve all heard of meditation and most of us are aware of how it works. But have you heard of self meditation before? What does this involve?
The clue is in the name of this form of meditation – self. The idea is to focus on you rather than on nothingness, which is what the focus of many different types of meditation is all about. With self meditation you can become more aware of yourself and every aspect about you.
Some may find this a little alarming at first – particularly if they are so busy rushing around and doing everything else that they are not aware of how they feel inside. But given time this can be enormously beneficial.
Does it have physical advantages?
Yes, meditation has been proven to help us in many ways with regard to the health of our bodies.
For example it is very good for lowering blood pressure. If you find yourself feeling stressed very often you can focus on meditating by yourself to help you feel calmer and more centred within yourself.
Many people also find that the benefits of meditating extend beyond the actual time they spend meditating. For instance you may spend twenty minutes each morning meditating. But this will make you feel calmer and more serene through the rest of the day as well – no matter what life decides to throw at you.
How can it help you mentally?
Self meditation enables you to feel calmer about your life and everything that is going on around you. So often we find we do not have time to focus on ourselves, but meditation can give us the ‘me time’ we need.
Meditating by yourself also permits you to find the best way of doing it for your own needs. If you focus on following a particular method or way of meditating, it could be that you are not happy about the results. You may not feel comfortable with the way someone else does it.
When you focus on how you want to do it, you can find your own path to peace and stillness that works for you. Just because you do it differently to everyone else, this does not make your form of meditation any less valid.
You may feel a little self conscious meditating to begin with. But don’t worry – just find a way of getting started that you feel comfortable with. Once you get the hang of it you will find you actually look forward to each session.
Try and make a habit of meditating at the same time each day. The morning is good because it can set you up for the day. The evening can also be useful as it will calm you down and make you feel peaceful and ready for a good night’s sleep. In short, there are many benefits to self meditation.
